DFN SPOOKY CAT

2016 Sorrel Tobiano Fillly

Spooks Delta Dude x Elphabelena (QH)

Bella is a super-well-built filly and a definite show prospect !! Quick, catty & good bone & size, she’s easy to get along with in one of the prettiest packages you’ll see in the show pen!! 

 

Bella started her show career in summer of 2019 and at her first cow horse show in Saskatoon, SK was named Sask Reined Cow Horse Association’s Stallion Incentive Program NON-PRO FUTURITY CHAMPION!!

Some of Bella's career highlights include:

2019 SRCHA STALLION INCENTIVE PROGRAM - NON PRO FUTURITY CHAMPION
2019 CANADIAN SUPREME - NON PRO FUTURITY - HIGH FENCE SCORE

2019 NORTHERN ALBERTA REINED COW HORSE CLUB FUTURITY/DERBY - NON PRO FUTURITY RESERVE CHAMPION + Non Pro Futurity High Score Herd-work

In 2022/2023 Bella will be taking a break from the show-pen and will be given the opportunity to try a different job (at least for a while) and try to produce some babies at least as awesome as she is!!  In spring of 2022 she will be bred to the great Cats Picasso!!  Watch for the resulting foal(s) in spring 2013!!

Bella is currently NOT FOR SALE – she may or may not be finished with her show-career, she but destined for a permanent home in my future broodmare-band regardless!!

 

Bella is tested N/T (Tobiano) as well as N/Gbed but N/N on the other 4 of 5 panel diseases as well as N/N for OLWS (Lethal White)

"DFN SPOOKSCATTYSISTER"

2018 Bay Splash FILLY      APHA #1082,094

Sire: SPOOKS DELTA DUDE (Spooks Gotta Gun x Deltas Spicy Diamonds)

Dam: OMEGA KITTY (QH daughter of the one and only HIGH BROW CAT!!)

“SISTER” is the first filly from this cross after a long line of only-colts, so she is definitely being put onto the “keeper” list!!  I think you’d have to travel many miles to find one as pretty as this filly and with her proven power-packed pedigree she is going to stay in MY herd and help me to continue my goal of producing the BEST APHA cowhorses around!! 

Her sire, Spooks Delta Dude is a proven cowhorse with numerous accomplishments to his name, and his foals are definitely starting to make a mark and get noticed in the show-pen. This filly will be put into the program to continue to build his legacy – which I am SURE she will!!!

Sister’s dam, OMEGA KITTY is one of my favourite mares and is the dam of DFN SPOOKY CAT who has been putting APHA paint horses on the map in the QH filled world of Working Cow Horse in Western Canada the last couple years!!  Although she isn’t quite as “LOUD” marked as her brother “Larry” I’m sure people will be watching and noticing this fancy filly as well when she hits the show pen!! 

Sister is NOT being offered for sale at this time.  I have chosen her as my own show-prospect to put into training, and she will one day be a replacement for her dam in my broodmare band to produce some awesome APHA cowhorse/cutting horse prospects in the years to come!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

"DFN SPOOKY COLORD"

2020 Sorrel Tovero (max-white) FILLY      APHA #1102,932

Sire: SPOOKS DELTA DUDE (Spooks Gotta Gun x Deltas Spicy Diamonds)

Dam: DO BE COLORD (daughter of the one and only COLOR ME SMART out of daughter of Dual Pep)

"SNOW" is the first filly from this cross that I have put in my 'keeper pen' so I'm excited to see how she does in training!!  Here's hoping we see her in the show-pen in 2023!!

(Apparently I really need to get some updated photos of this sweetie - for now we'll go with baby-pics)
